About ApricotKing

Since 1946, the Gonzales family has grown the rare and fabulous California Blenheim apricots. Grown on our Hollister ranch, we continue to be the farmer, pruner, dryer, packer, and seller of the vanishing Blenheim apricot. We produce the best tasting apricots in the world all "Home Grown in the Flavor Zone"!

In addition to our incredible dried apricots, be sure to discover our variety of nuts (walnuts, pistachios, almonds) and other dried fruits (peaches, pears, prunes, and more). For those who believe less is more, we have dark and delicious unsulfured dried apricots. And don't forget our sweet and tart selection of apricot jams and syrups as well as our decadent chocolate covered fruits and nuts.  Simply delicious! Everything here on the ranch is organically grown.

Apricot Leathers 16 oz

And they're back.....the 2021 crop of leathers is eeeeeexcelent.

The wildly popular and fabulously sweet leathers are what the old timers request.

This is fruit done the "old fashioned" way - overripe fruit pulled off the tray, lightly rinsed and very, very sun-dried. 

They are intensely flavored, firm & dry, & extra sweet,  and they're SLABS.

No water weight; just the fruit .....bone dry texture....it's fight to the finish on these apricots.

16 oz bags

If you like your cots soft and tender, order any of our other slabs.

These leather are labor intensive and difficult to clean and hand packed. 

Leathers are always the first product we run out of each season.

  1. The very best Blenheim apricots available!

    Posted by Moira on Feb 20th 2021

    I grew up in the Santa Clara Valley where my parents had a couple of apricot trees in the backyard. They were so delicious and have always been my favorite dried fruit. When I found Apricot King, I immediately ordered the Leathers and have been a customer ever since. You cannot find better tasting dried apricots anywhere! Their products are superb along with quality packaging and great customer service. I am so very happy I found them!

  2. What leathers?

    I ordered two bags and I ate them all up. They're gone, they're so good!!

  3. YEARS

    Posted by Curtis spencer on Feb 3rd 2021

    Since the the mid 60si have been consuming dried apricots. For 45 years I have purchased hundreds of pounds of these tasty morsels for Mariani/ Nutz . com/ Hadley fruit farms. Well after all those years I found Apricot King. I placed my first order and to my surprise my Apricots showed up on time ( keep in mind I live in Alaska ) and in great shape. When I opened the package I was really shocked , everything was packaged neatly with quality material AND with extra goodies inside. BUT ABOVE ALL I found the Apricots , I cant even express the quality / the care that this product receives from origin to consumer is top shelf. THANK YOU APRICOT KING. These Apricots are hands down the best in the biz.

  6. Husband pleasin'

    Posted by Susie Fasanaro on Dec 6th 2020

    These are my husband's absolute favorite dried apricots!
    He likes the chewy goodness without the squishy sweetness that often comes with dried fruit.
    I ordered 2 bags, one that we just finished, and one that I hid for Santa to bring. (o:

  8. Great Apricots

    Posted by John C, San Antonio, TX on Nov 2nd 2020

    I've been looking for extra dry apricots for what seems like years and I found them in these leathers! They are the absolute best. My only problem is that I only ordered three pounds. I could eat 10 in no time. I will definitely order more.
